Developing Success in MLM Starting with Success in MLM Business Opportunity Running a business is not an easy task and building success in MLM is no different, regardless of what you are told on the opportunity webinar. There is a myriad of tasks and obligations a business owner must deal with on a daily basis. In addition to this, the successful entrepreneur instinctively understands that they as the business owner are responsible for making the business successful and profitable. In all cases where a successful business is launched and succeeds, the business owner will consistently do the tasks necessary to grow the business. This is simple logic that everyone agrees with, even if you are not an entrepreneur and don’t own your own business. So why then would people think that it is any different running and being successful in MLM? The same principles apply in an MLM business as they do in a traditional business. The MLM business owner must do the tasks necessary to make their MLM business successful; consistency brings success in MLM. Yet for so many individuals they get started in an MLM business opportunity, have zero consistency in completing the necessary tasks, then are shocked when they don’t make any money. Why MLM Businesses Fail. For the past 70 years, the MLM industry has continued to grow. In fact, the pace at which it is growing has increased. The simple fact that the MLM industry is growing should be proof that the business model works and owning your own MLM business is a viable source of income. Yet for many people, they get started in an MLM business opportunity, do not see the results, give up too quickly and quit. They then turn around and say the business didn’t work for various reasons – products, compensation plan, support, etc. but what they fail to see is that it failed because of them. At the risk of sounding harsh, their MLM business failed because they were not consistent in their daily activities. They did not see success in MLM because the individual never did the activities required to build the business properly and consistently. Remember that this is still a business and while you may have upline support and training, it still comes down to you, the business owner to do the tasks to build your MLM business. Practice Makes Perfect. The expression practise makes perfect applies to everything that you want to do in life. If you want to be better at something you have to practise that skill until you master it. The same holds true for building success in MLM. If you are new to the MLM industry then it is imperative that you work daily with your upline. This will allow you to understand the skill sets that you need to develop to build your MLM business. Once you know what these skill sets are it is then up to you the business owner to practise getting better at them every day. It is through this consistency in performing the tasks that you will master them, and along the way, you will build your MLM business. All too often people get started in their MLM business and are excited about their new venture and will do all the things that their upline share with them. However as the days turn into weeks and the excitement of starting the MLM business fades, the consistency with which the tasks are being done also fades. The results then slip, the communication becomes less frequent and the end result is the individual quits their MLM business opportunity. Keys to Success in MLM. With the MLM industry being successful and growing, there is no reason why you cannot be part of the growth too. Your consistency will bring you success in MLM. If you are consistently accomplishing the right tasks and working with your upline you will be successful. When you start your MLM business your upline will be your first rung on your success ladder. They will be with you every step of the way and they will work with you so that you can develop and master the skills needed to be successful. Understand that it is ok to ask for help and have your upline demonstrate the proper way to perform the specified task. From there you then duplicate what your upline did and continue to practice the task until you master it. Do not be afraid to fail, you will make mistakes but that is all part of the learning process. Remember your MLM business is exactly the same when it comes to consistency as any traditional business. You as the business owner must consistently carry out the tasks that will build your business. Those tasks will include prospecting and inviting, retailing, product training, delivering presentations, one on one meetings and the list continues. Do not be intimidated by the amount you must learn if you are new to the MLM industry. Lean on your upline as they will help you, they want to see you succeed! Your most important task when you start your MLM business is to be consistent. You and only you can control that, and through your consistency, you will learn the skills necessary and you will have success in the MLM industry. Remember there are no short-cuts to success. You must practise and master the skills. The reward is well worth the work that you must do. Everyone that has succeeded in the MLM industry will tell you the exact same thing. *Examples in these materials are not to be interpreted as a promise or guarantee of earnings.
